Design-Build Contracts

"Design-Build" means a project delivery method that combines all or some portions of the design and construction phases of a project - including without limitations design, right-of-way acquisition, regulatory permit approvals, utility relocation, and construction – into a single contract. TDOT will clearly define the standards and general specifications they expect for a project, and the design-builder works to satisfy those requirements.

The Department is utilizing the design-build concept to expedite project delivery and streamline design processes.
